"In 1990, [Baltimore] saw one old theatre close its doors and a new one set up shop in a storefront. Now the twain meet, as Everyman Theatre, the scrappy upstart from the Station North arts district, moves into a long-shuttered vaudeville house, the Empire Theatre, a little over a mile away in the city's historic but blighted Westside," reports American Theatre Magazine. "It might be counted as a hopeful sign that, though the Empire Theatre, which opened in 1911, has gone by other names over the years – for a while it was a burlesque house called the Palace, then a movie theatre called the Town – it kept a prominent "E" carved at the top of the building. That's one thing Everyman didn't have to change at all."
